Jailhouse Rock

Most people hope to never ever go to jail.

But not Raquel Allegra. She marches down to L.A. county jail to scoop up old, worn-out T-shirts and turns them into coveted designs.

Do not scoff. One peek at her debut line and you’ll be clamoring for every single piece. Each creation is distressed by Allegra herself and can include cutting, sheering, shredding, and stretching until she deems it perfect; asymmetrical hemlines and mismatched sleeves also add to the charm.

To really appreciate the tanks, tunics, dresses, and scarves, you must really see past the cotton and into the workmanship, as prices range from $200 to nearly $1,400.

Some might even accuse her of highway robbery.
